What is Ideathon?
Ideathon is a week-long content, supported by Google Devs Europe, that will get you ahead of the game!
You will use your creativity and cool tech skills to design the architecture of a scalable application. (this can be a mobile application, a web app, a website, or some sort of hardware)
How does the contest work?
-You form a team (maximum 4 members)
-Choose one (or more) goals from the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals
-You create the architecture of an application that solves this problem. Note that this architecture needs to be scalable and plausible to actually create!
What will Ideathon provide me with?
-A kickoff event (December 10th). We will explain everything you need to know to ace your contest + we have cool speaker sessions
-A week-long mentorship session. Ask questions from the best in the game!
How else does Ideathon help me with the Solution Challenge?
-Your design needs to contribute, to one or more of the UN’s 17 goals to end poverty, ensure prosperity, and protect the planet, just like the solution challenge.
-The first two steps of participating in the Solution Challenge are 1) Forming a team, 2) Having an awesome idea that is PLAUSIBLE to create and design its architecture
-So not only do you have the opportunity to do both of those things, but you ALSO get a bunch of cool prizes for it! (Not a bad deal!)
What’s in it for me?
-You will gain real-life skills that will look super cool on your resume( PS: you will get a certificate if you submit your idea)
-You will be using your knowledge for good and contributing to making our planet a better place.
-Getting the chance to receive mentorship from the best in the industry
-Learning how to design a scalable project
-Being ahead of the game for the Solution Challenge
